pretty heavily at this point. when i was getting started, we all wanted to work in big cities and work for famous news organizations. in the end, when i look back in my own early career frustrations, the best thing in the world for me was going out and being a star. build my confidence. i've was the best guy in the newsroom in places i will not name. it made me think i could actually do this. much better than being the youngest person at the new york "new york times."e >> next question. >> [indiscernible] [laughter] >> thank you. a lot of this election, a lot of the political coverage on television, has been based on pontificating that goes on every day and night on the cable stations. and, to a large extent, someone mentioned earlier, i forget the name of the guy i knew very well, but he was a washington post reporter who went out -- >> you are talking about david. >> yes. he talked to voters. do you think there is a basic weakness in the fact that much of the coverage is being done by, or at least much of the information is being dispensed by people who sit on their duffs in tv

faraway city playing out the way you had talked about in the morning. it was kind of magical. i think that i thought i was pretty much done then, so i decided at that moment i was not going to do 2012. my son was now year-old. he is the obama baby. i second son was born about the 120-day mark of the new administration. so we had a lot of stuff going on and home, too. but when i look at it, it is so different. i have 58 races under my belt. the obama campaign has not had one really this year. so i thought this is really hard work. some people may describe it in the news as a slog. i imagine it is. it's probably really hard to go that long. as far as what is the difference, i don't know yet. at this point you have to pick seven or 58 tests -- 57 or 58 tests to see how things are going, but not this time around. it's a pretty tight organization. i think the romney campaign has had a lot of the same challenges we have had and more in 2008 than this campaign in 2012. in terms of the difference between romney and obama this time? well, one is a calendar campaign and one is an incumbent campaign.

a fascinating analogous case that arose in san francisco in 1966 when the city of san francisco said it would not fund social-service agencies, including catholic charities that did not provide health-care benefits to domestic partners. the catholic archbishop of san francisco, no liberal, he wound up succeeding rep singer for the congregation of the doctrine of the faith. but they came to a compromise designate anyone legally domiciled in the residence as a health-care co beneficiary. be that person a child, a parent, an aunt, a close friend or a gay and lesbian partner. the archbishop argued the catholic church was always in favor of increasing health-care insurance coverage and this was a way to do it, even though there would be this other factor involved. in my judgment, the second set of rules from the obama administration proposes compromise which in its own way tries to respect the freedom and rights of all parties involved. thank you.
